Mikesgroover A shake-the-rust off outing with only a few moments worth seeking out in Disease and Simple

The Disease has a few minutes of power and energy starting at around the 8 minute mark. The crowd responds as well.
Mound is mangled pretty badly- They retired it for the rest of 1.0 after playing it four times on this tour. Ice is also flubbed.

A short Wolfman's opens the second set, and the Taste that follows it as quite well-played until the end, when some missed notes mar an otherwise strong version.

The Simple jam is really interesting and worth a listen, kicking off a tour in which Simple really came into its own. This version has some long sustain from Trey before he moves to the mini-kit, when the jam gets percussive. Some Mike-led jamming that goes into some strange territory before Page eventually gets into the action.

The rest of the show is eminently forgettable.

Palmer If I remember correctly Lake Placid PD was out in full force before the show, and having this concert in the middle of the week in a small town like Placid brought negative attention to the community- according to the locals, my aunt and uncle live in neighboring Saranac. My friend went to this show, and I immediately listened to the show when I got my hands on the copy. Simple had some interesting improvisational playing (unique bass and space loops from Trey). The Antelope was decent as well.
